1970 Plymouth Barracuda AAR

STK 2125 1970 AAR Plymouth Cuda The current owner of this ‘J’ Code 1970 AAR ‘Cuda has had it in his collection for the past 8 years. Chrysler produced the AAR model for one year only to compete on the SCAA road race circuit and challenge Ford’s Mustang. AAR meant ‘All American Racer’ and there were only 2,724 ever built. The production AAR ‘Cuda was visually altered from the regular E-body Barracuda with unique ‘strobe’ stripes that held the AAR ‘Cudalogo and a fiberglass hood that actually took in fresh air. It also had front “eyebrow” spoilers and a rear “duck tail “spoiler. Unlike the standard Barracuda, the AAR’s exhaust came out the sides near the back wheels. Under the hood, the AAR had Chrysler’s Six-Pack 340ci engine that was unique to this model and the Dodge Challenger T/A. This version of the 340 differed from a production 340 in many ways including a 3x2 Holley carb set-up, thicker main bearings webs and a set of new 360 ‘J-Heads’ with 2.02/1.60 valves. In a way, it was a kind-of a ‘small-block hemi’ – it could really breathe. This motor was factory rated at 290hp. However, the de-stroked 305ci track version put out 440hp, which leads one to believe that the factory rating may have been a bit conservative. Beyond that, our ‘Cuda has a set of full-tube headers with collectors to add just a little more punch. Power is delivered to a 3.55:1 posi-traction differential by a bulletproof Chrysler 727 3-speed Torqueflite. From an appearance standpoint, the Lemon Twist Yellow exterior and custom black cloth/vinyl interior are in very good condition. Add the stripes, the spoilers and the matte black hood and this AAR is nothing short of stunning. BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires are mounted on original equipment Mopar Rally wheels. Other upgrades include: power disc/drum brakes, tinted windows, AM radio and Rally-Pak instrumentation. The AAR ‘Cuda is a piece of MOPAR history - a testament to Chrysler performance. It will just continue to appreciate. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
